Ruger 8301 American Rimfire 22LR Reviewed

Posted on Nov 30, 2014

For some time I’ve been wanting a bolt-action .22LR for plinking and basic target practice. Especially with all of the cheap ammo out there.

Not to mention the fact that they generally slow down the rate of fire which can increase accuracy and save money on ammo at the same time. Now let’s see how Ruger’s 8301 test drive went…

Unique-ARs Free Float Hand Guard Reviewed

Posted on Jul 28, 2014

I first saw Unique-ARs hand guards at one of my local gun shops and I immediately had to play around with one.
